Which Selling Sunset Star Earns The Most Money?

"Selling Sunset" Season 5 proved to be the most dramatic yet, thanks in large part to the ongoing feud between breakout star Christine Quinn and the rest of the cast. As People notes, the season culminated with Quinn's future at the Oppenheim Group up in the air, after co-star Emma Hernan accused her of attempting to bribe a client not to work with Hernan anymore. Quinn didn't attend the cast reunion and subsequently launched her own cryptocurrency-based real estate company.

"I terminated my contract when the brokerage launched," she clarified. "I had to make a business decision that was for me, so I had to terminate the contract so I could move it over to my brokerage." Furthermore, co-star and boss Jason Oppenheim was fully aware of what Quinn had planned, with her confirming the two have "a really good understanding," and there's no bad blood. Quinn also denied the bribe accusation completely.

Quinn's role in Season 6 of "Selling Sunset" isn't what you'd expect because, despite spectacularly quitting the O Group, the Netflix star has confirmed she's not leaving the show. But that doesn't mean Quinn is on good terms with, well, anybody associated with it. In fact, Page Six points out that both Chrishell Stause and Mary Fitzgerald claimed Quinn lied about testing positive for COVID-19 to get out of going to the reunion. Unsurprisingly, then, the Netflix star is wasting no time sharing who's making bank on the hit show. 

The self-professed highest paid Selling Sunset cast-member isn't surprising

If she's going out, it's going to be in a blaze of glory. Fresh off telling Us Weekly she "loves" appearing on "Selling Sunset" and anticipates producers fitting her into the ongoing storyline regardless of her no longer working for the featured brokerage, Christine Quinn risked it all by spilling the tea on what really goes on behind the scenes. "We just have to get creative now because I don't work for the Oppenheim Group. ... Maybe it's a battle of the brokerages," she suggested. Apparently kicking the rivalry off immediately, Quinn shared who earns the most money. Speaking on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast (via Just Jared), she admitted, "I'm gonna get sued after this. I don't care. You can't afford my lawyers."

Quinn went on to confirm, "There's three different tiers. I get paid the most. Jason [Oppenheim] as well. ... My entertainment attorney, you know, basically [said] this is my value and I think it's all about recognizing your worth." Although the reality star and author claims she tried to get everybody on the same footing, according to Quinn, "It didn't work and some people were eager to sign their contracts right away, which immediately tiered them in a different group," per Us

It remains to be seen whether the "Selling Sunset" breakout's comments will affect her standing on the show but if Quinn does stick around for Season 6, it's sure to be unmissable.
